Pszczyna
The Water Tower in Kilińskiego Street in Pless is certainly the most modern and most spectacular monument in the town. The modernized construction looks particularly interesting, when illuminated at night. It was built between 1927 and 1928 as part of the municipal water supply, and its reinforced concrete structure was made by the famous company of the brothers Gryczów. In 2010, a restaurant in the steampunk style was opened in the tower. It is a real find for fans of science fiction.

Pszczyna
"Paleya" (from the French word “palais”meaning “palace”), as it is called in Pszczyna, is a historic building of the former Duke's Estates Directorate-General. The building was erected in the northern neoGothic style, at the beginning of the last century. During the First World War, the headquarters of the supreme command of the German imperial army was set up in the building. German Emperor Wilhelm II accompanied by, among others, Marshal Paul von Hindenburg and General Erich von Ludendorff often visited the headquarters.
Pszczyna
After the conquest by Prussia, Silesia was divided into districts. A number of the royal officials appeared in towns and cities, which at the same time meant that some privileges of the local lords were cancelled. Landrats - Prussian governors appointed by the king – took over power in the districts. The present building of the District Office was erected not before the 80s of the nineteenth century. Previously, the District Office occupied successively two other buildings.
Pszczyna
Pszczyna is an old town founded as a settlement next to the Piast stronghold. The medieval origins are reflected in the layout of the town center characteristic for the contemporary ways of building towns. The heart of the town is the market square surrounded with the neo -Baroque town hall, the Evangelical church and houses of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, which is regarded the most beautiful in Silesia. The gridiron plan is enclosed by defense walls. The regularity is only disturbed by the palace and park complex adjacent to the town.
Pszczyna
"Piastowska Street is the main promenade in Pszczyna. It is mostly lined with buildings from the nineteenth and twentieth century. However, the most conspicuous house is a small tenement, roofed with shingles. It was built in the eighteenth century and now houses an extraordinary institution – the Wojciech Korfanty Museum of the Silesian Press. It collects Silesian prints, antique printing machinery and equipment. The museum recreates Wojciech Korfanty’s editorial office. On the first floor, “the Chamber of Telemann” can be found."
